Ya Cathy, that's why I don't put things up on Youtube, to much of a hassle, people are just going to make trouble quite truthfully for two reasons. One, because they can, and two because they can remain anonymous through out the whole process, it's just to much of a burden to put a whole bunch of good stuff up and then have them taken down due to a bogus claim.

The "anonymous" angle, in a perfect world if someone sees something on You Tube or elsehwere that is a copyright violation then he/she BEFORE they contact You Tube should contact privately the person who had uploaded the clip and ask that person to remove it. If the uploader refuses..THEN contact You Tube. Unfortunately TV & radio stations, movie studios & networks and even celebrities are NOT allowed to have any contact with the average John & Jane for legal reasons so therfor they must go straight to You Tube.

The only reason KWGN had spoke to me about this is because I know some of their staff who in turned checked it out for me, alas had I NOT know anyone there, KWGN would never had discussed this with me.

This sort of thing reminds me of the various forums that allow people to say anything even if its illegal and slanderous, even though those postings can be traced back to the person who had posted the stuff in the first place..easier just to contact the website and have the post remove rather that taking that extra step.
